No way to tell on a solid colored chick this young. You'll have to watch and wait.

Really??? Oh that's so relieving... I was told she could be a roo. She's so pretty, and very sweet.. I'd be so sad if I couldn't keep her

Post some updated photos in a couple of weeks. It looks like you have some pretty ones in this batch. smile.png


Been what, like a year?

I will. I think I do too! I've even got a partially laced one, though that one is without doubt a boy.



At least!

He's going to be a very pretty boy when he grows up. The EE rooster I kept last year was partially laced and I got a couple of very nice looking pullets off of him.

Never give up. While we still live there is hope. With God all things are possible.

Yeah! I hope my sister will let me keep him. (She's not a fan of EE roosters)

Nice!

Much longer, pointier feathers at base of neck now... They are almost 9 weeks old. Becoming more and more convinced it's a roo :(

That's a pullet. And she is gorgeous.


X2 on both accounts!

Pullet for now.

I could still go either way on this. Keep updating us!

Some updated pics of my (probable) roo. This one is picked on quite a bit, and has had it's feathers plucked out of its back a few times, but they are growing back in now. The feather color is still a little purplish pink from the pick-no-more. It's comb is pinker than my others, but barely raised. It is the most fearful and timid. Thoughts?

I finally got pics of our last 2 Easter Eggers.  Thinking the lighter is a hen, darker one unsure.  Both are 5 weeks, 2 days in the pics.

Lighter one is Rose and Darker one is Penny.  Any thoughts?

Too young to be certain. Both look like pullets for now, but that could change in another few weeks.
